Whatness is an audio gallery founded in 2000 with the aim of combining structures of the visual and musical arts. Such internationally renowned artists as Liam Gillick, Scott Ohlson, Frank Bretschneider, Joseph Suchy, Stephen Galloway, Markus Schmickler, Ekkehard Ehlers, Bill Forsythe, Olafur Eliasson, The Halfters, Oliver Augst, Rüdiger Carl, Sven-Åke Johansson, Martin Kippenberger, and Peter Roehr present their own works as entirely autonomous artistic positions. The fusion of these positions in a project specially created for Whatness generates an expansion of the original media and explores the possibilities of an exchange between art and music by various means such as graphic notation, instrument making and vocal art. The respective collaborations are then published as a CD.
